Gasoline Systems Accelerator-pedal module Accelerator-pedal module APM The air and fuel systems of gasoline engines prepare an air-fuel mixture which allows the engine to generate the required torque. Simultaneously, this mixture also fulﬁlls further requirements, for example from the exhaust system. The electronic engine control adjusts the ideal air-fuel ratio and the optimal injection timing. The engine control evaluates sensor signals from the entire drivetrain and the exhaust system, prioritizes them and converts them into control commands. Task The driver’s requirement for more or less torque is a key input variable for controlling the air charge electronically. The accelerator-pedal module provides this Customer benefits variable as a sensor signal. ▶ Comprehensive system expertise: hardware (pedal), software and system know-how from Function a single source The accelerator-pedal module (APM) comprises ▶ Designed for worldwide application an accelerator pedal and a potentiometer or a non- ▶ Easy switch from contacting to non-contacting contacting Hall sensor as angular-position sensor. sensor due to modular concept This sensor registers the movement and the position ▶ Packaging advantage based on compact design of the accelerator pedal.
